The Village of Aroma Park Would like to welcome you to our website.
Our village was founded in 1852 by Alvin and Slocum Wilber who created the word Aroma by playing on the name of their friend and associate James L. Romer. Due to potential confusion between “Aroma” and “Aurora” led to changing the name to Waldron in 1872. It was changed back to Aroma and the word Park was added around 1915.
Our village is located 63.9 miles south of Chicago Illinois and is bordered by the beautiful Kankakee and Iroquois rivers.
